Images appear upside down when I look through the eyepiece


Yes, that is the way with astronomical telescopes.
Perfectly normal. We don't care if the image is upside-down or backwards [flipped left to right]

My Galileo telescope shows the front cross bars and mirror base in the eye piece regardless of the eye piece I use. What is causing this issue?


You are NOT turning the focus knob far enough to achieve focus. Practice during the day time on a distant object.

The plastic part that the eye pieces fit into is broken is there a way to get a replacement part for it?


First it's only a plastic part because of the telescope you bought. Usually a diagonal is all metal.

Many companies sell diagonals they come ion 3 sizes .965, 1.25, and 2 inch sizes. Measure the hole in the back of the telescope and buy the correct size.

Here are two retailers:

When you set the tripod up 2 of the lugs have broken from where the accessary tray fits,one arm to one lag,its where it attatches to the legs


Contact Meade directly and see if they have a replacement tray.

or build one to fit from a piece of wood or metal.

Missing parts to the Galileo FS-102NT Telescope


You can contact Galileo scopes directly here;
http://www.galileosplace.com/

Some of what you need may be available at a well stocked hardware store.

Eyepieces, and barlows can be bought from many on-line retailers. Here is one:
http://agenaastro.com/

The CD rom is probably just a planetarium software. You can download free software here:
www.stellarium.org

The scope does not need computer software to operate. However, you will find the free software above very helpful in learning the sky. Color filters are really NOT very useful; only the moon filter is needed which you can buy from the retailer listed above.

Actual proprietary parts like the accessory tray must be bought directly from Galileo telescopes. But a hardware store will have springs and bolts and nuts.
